CODATA and the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) – and other partners – will convene an International Training Workshop on Big Data. This will continue the emerging series of International Training Workshops which CODATA is seeking to establish with a variety of partners. Recent training workshops have been held in Beijing, China and in Nairobi, Kenya.
The International Training Workshop will take place at the Indian Statistical Institute in Bangalore, India on 9-20 March 2015. Places for roughly twenty students will be available.
Travel, subsistence and accommodation for participants from India will be provided through ISI. Interested participants should contact Devika P. Madalli <devika[AT]drtc.isibang.ac.in>.
Students from SAARC countries and from other countries in South Asia will be welcome. A limited number of scholarships supporting travel, accommodation and subsistence may be available. Further announcements will be made, however, interested parties should send a brief CV as soon as possible to Simon Hodson <execdir[AT]codata.org> and Devika Madalli <devika[AT]drtc.isibang.ac.in> and you will be contacted about scholarship opportunities.
